I Hate My Itchy Scalp

In psoriasis the hair takes on a coarse, asbestos-like 
appearance Have you see that photo? These is my problem for a few years already. I've been trying different kinds of remedies and went to the doctor for a few times too and they send me off some allergy medication that makes me too drowsy to do much anything and give me loads of smelly creams and sticky ointments that only mask the problem. I'm really tired and seek of it. And I get depressed when I see my scalp is flaking.

My sister has the same problem too, and her doctor advice her to use a T/Gel  Therapeutic Original shampoo such as Netrogena. It helps control itching and flaking symptomatic of scalp psoriasis, seborrheic  dermatitis and even common dandruff. This rich T/Gel therapeutic shampoo lather gently cleanses, leaving hair lustrous and manageable even with everyday use.

She's  been telling me that this skin problems has something to do with our genes. My father has the same problem too but he got it on his lower legs. He is been using dermovate cream ointment for ages.

2. “I got nasty habits, I take tea at three.” Do you have an nasty habits?

On What I've Been Doing Lately

Hey, guys, I'm back here. Happy Sunday to all and hope you enjoy your weekend ^-^

I missed these things, writing about myself, what I've been thinking or doing? Lately, I'm too lazy to do certain things. I enjoyed looking back those time when I was a little kid and happy to be with my siblings.  It procrastinating my time until ends up in one pack because I have to do it quickly. In short unproductive and tiring days.

Going back those memories on my mind (it's always been a part of me)for the past few days that wasted my time. Modestly speaking, I've always been a good girl. For almost 19 years away without parental guidance, I have no choice but to be strong and to stand my own. From a country girl who never knew what city life is. But never, never came up to my mind to do things that can never be proud of especially to my family and to my self. However, there are times that on my journey towards my goal, there are people tries to break it. They stole the trust of my family and the people who cared and loved me. Partly they've won to destroy me  but I'm still lucky eventually at the end I got back the trust they've been given me.  It made me cry  I cannot forgive those people, I tried too but the hate and the anger stayed here in my heart. Somehow, someday, time can heal the wound.

It made me surprised also that for 11 years that I've only  seen  my family once in a year for five days and now eight straight years without seeing them hit me to missed my mother so much. I know it's normal but I find it odd feelings, it's not like me,  being away for many years I can't even remember the cooking of my mother. But then,  I still remember her voice shouting at me. LOL! I can still remember the way she get angry with my father. I can't remember her touch but I can remember her smile. Certainly, mother has unconditional love and I know she missed me that much as I missed her too. I have spoken to her yesterday and that missed her a lot more. My relationship with my mother is not like what my siblings have, that probably had been missing between us. But I admire my mother so tenderly.

It made me think also that I wish people came with warning labels so I know which one to avoid. I know I'm not perfect, I have flaws also as a human being. A human being  who is tired to those self-centered, selfish, thoughtless and careless people. People who waste so much of my time and energy. The most disapointing part is you get a long these people so well but also can get hard to handle every day. It's quiet the double edge sword for there is nothing like a genuine human caring response yet nothing as crushing or disappointing as cruel, thoughtless, insensitive response.

Those thoughts occupied my mind lately and I forgot the things I have to do..Such as

1. I have to pick up my box to my friend so that I could start packing now with my second box to be send home this end of the month.
2. I have to cut toenails of Sara. I forgot it for quiet a few days already
3. I have some ironing to do

And lastly, yesterday I had a big job and shouldn't be neglected even for a second. Hehehe! When we came home from the pool , water was flowing in the floor of the kitchen. Gee! Our freeze, suddenly turn off , the machine is not working.. Whew! So, I cleaned up  and it lasted me two hours to finish. I cleaned the whole kitchen though hahaha!

Happy Sunday!

A Donkey In The Well

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer  tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be recovered up anyway, so it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.  Then to everyone amazement's he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He astonished at what he saw. With each shovel dirt hit his back , the donkey was doing something. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Now, most people think that's the end, but it isn't.

The donkey later came back and bit the shit out of the farmer who had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected, and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.

Lesson : Do unto other as you what have others do unto you. If you don't want to be ripped off, don't rip off others . If you don't want to be judge, don't judge. When you do something that can hurt others, remember it is always come back to bite you.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy!

1. Free your heart from hatred
2. Free your mind from worries
3. Live simply
4. Give more
5. Expect less

Have a great day everyone!

On Wednesday Wickedness

My first Entry for Wednesday Wickedness:

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Ellen Degeneres. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. "I was coming home from kindergarten--well they told me it was kindergarten. I found out later I had been working in a factory for ten years. It's good for a kid to know how to make gloves." How old were you when you started working and what was your first job?
- I started working at age thirteen - handling deliveries and purchases of frozen and canned goods.

2. "My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is." Tell us about your grandparents.
- I was seven years old when my  paternal grandmother died. As far I remember she was a very kind woman. She worked like a midwife but not license midwife. She only used to help pregnant woman deliver their babies at home.  I never see my grandfather neither my maternal grandparents.

3. "Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off." Do you procrastinate or are you on top of the situations?
- Yes , sometimes during my off day , I used to do things in a last minute..lol but eventually it turned out so well.

4. "Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others." What would others say about you?
- I'm not a friendly type of person but others see me as charming, kind , helpful and sometimes my boyfriend told me I'm dominant and rational.. lol!

5. "The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble" Do you believe in life on other planets?
- Growing up in a farm land I've heard a lot of stories about these but I haven't seen any. so, I don't think so though it made me goose pimples listening the stories

6. "I'm a godmother, that's a great thing to be, a godmother. She calls me god for short, that's cute, I taught her that." Do you have a godchild?
- Yes, I do have. Daughter and son of my best friend

7. "I don't understand the sizes anymore. There's a size zero, which I didn't even know that they had. It must stand for: 'Ohhh my God, you're thin.'" When was the last time that you were called too thin?
- Since I was a kid until 14 years old I always called skinny with my friends and family and those people who see me

8. "I have the worst memory ever so no matter who comes up to me - they're just, like, 'I can't believe you don't remember me!" I'm like, 'Oh Dad I'm sorry!'" Who was the last person that you should have recognized but didn't?
- I'm very good in remembering names and faces. So, I can't remember who was the last person that I know but I cannot recognize.

9. "I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words." Do you work out? Have you ever joined a gym and quit almost immediately?
- Thanks for reminding me.. Hahaha! I should work out. Walking and jogging by the beach. I never been to gym.

10. 'We use 10 percent of our brains. Imagine how much we could accomplish if we used the other 60 percent." Do you feel that you utilize all your intelligence in every situation?
- My  boyfriend use to tell me that I'm clever to reason out ..lol! I could easily find ways to reason out..And Sara said (my patient) telling me often  that I always have an answer in every question.. But I don't think so that I utilize all my intelligence in every situation. I'm not in a corporate or politics world for that..Hahahaha!

Thank you Wednesday Wickedness, I became crazy a little bit answering these questions..Hahaha!

GT: I Love Me Mentally

Once again it's girl talk. And this week topic is love myself - Mentally. 

Our mind is the most powerful force. It gives us purpose, propels actions, gives insights and understanding, makes us reasonable, in fact makes us a living thing with unique wisdom. With our mind, any ideas conceivable can be brought to reality.  
So, in my mental approach in life - what I love mentally about me is being strong. My mind can able to handle any stress in life. My mother always admire and trust my capacity to handle  difficulties. She always believe that I am very strong that sometimes the expectation is  unreachable.  I  believe too that I'm quiet smart mentally - from all the hardships and experiences I've been through in my life I can say I'm proud of myself of what I have.

My ability to succeed comes within me though along my way I have failures but it's part of my life journey and I'm just human.  I want to be natural, being true too myself. I don't want to be a hero just to be appreciated and admired. But I love my mental positive approach in life. Above all I thank GOD for everything he has given me.

Top 10 Qualities Of A Friend

A real friend will always possesses these 10 qualities and even more which can be important for you. If you also give these qualities to your friend there is no chance that your friendship will ever break. These qualities are important for a lifetime friendship and that is what we all expect from a real friendship. If you have friends with these qualities you have to cherish them because these qualities of your friend are vital in your life.

Here are top 10 qualities of every friend should have which I agreed upon.


1. HONESTY - Honesty is the best policy to keep a friendship alive. A real friend will always tell the truth and never lie. Everyone wants a "true friend" and you will never maintain your friendship if you don't tell the truth, even if it hurts. If your friend discovers you know certain important facts which maybe hurts you and you hide this information you will lose trust and friendship is based upon bond.
 2. A Good Listener - You will need a friend to share your problems with. You don't want to talk with everyone about the problems you have and a real friend will listen and will try to give some useful advice. A friend will listen to your problems and give his or her opinion without interfering.
3. TRUSTWORTHINESS -Trust is an important aspect in every friendship. You share almost everything with your friend and also confidential information. You need to rely on your friend's word to keep in this information between you and your friend.


4. RESPECT - Everyone has different opinions and it is important your friend shows respect for your point of view. It is not necessary he agrees with your points and can be sometimes try to change your mind but he need always to respect you, even if he dis agree with you. Her opinion is always open.

5. MAKING FUN -A friend is not only valuable for your problems but you need someone to make fun with. Everyone needs to laugh and some humor is necessary in friendship

6) GOOD COMPANY - You will do many activities together with your friend. Maybe you are going together to a movie, theatre or a concert or you travel together. Your friend needs to be good company for enjoying your entertainment activity.

 7) PATIENCE - There are circumstances where patience of your friend is necessary. It is possible you complain about certain issues which you can't share with someone else. Patience is an important quality your friend needs to help you through this process.


8) FORGIVENESS - An important quality of a true friend. It is necessary when some problems arise between you and your friend. Everyone makes mistakes and sometimes they say things they don't mean. Forgiveness is important for maintaining your friendship and nobody will lose his or her best friend for a misunderstanding or a small conflict.

9) ENCOURAGEMENT - There are always periods in your life when you feel down or maybe a little bit depressed. A good friend will encourage his/her friend to do things for feeling better. Encouragement is a great quality every friend should have for helping each other through a difficult process.
10) CARING - A real friend will always care for you, in good and bad situations. If you are sick he will try to visit you as much as possible. He will always care for you no matter which problem you have and will give you the necessary support to reach certain goals

Most Treasured Possession

After bragging myself -financially on girls talk theme this week. I realize that I was boasting myself a little bit LOL! Anyhow, girls talk theme and my proust questionnaire post has a great contribution for my nostalgia entry this week. I hope, dear readers of my blog, won't get tired or feed up for another sober story, I want to share. (Sana di kayo magsawa, sumubaybay sa buhay ko )Toink, Drama Queen!

From my answer on Proust Questionnaire. What is your most treasured possession?

I should say that my  most treasured possession is my COLLEGE DIPLOMA. Why? and How I get it? Well, financially , that's why girl talk theme came in.LOL. I was born to a parents whose financial status is always a problem. I go over what I thought after I finished elementary , that I don't want to live this life for the rest of my life. When my mother decide not to send me to High School, I asked her if she know someone who could take me to work with so that I can go to High School. You can read the rest of the story from my post < Life as a Breadwinner" .

Financially,  at age 13, I able to worked as "housemaid" hahaha! . Actually, I was incharge for their canned/frozen business. Receiving and making purchases. Handling deliveries so on and so forth. A few to mentions until I got my High School Diploma. And Oh, I still got time signing slumbooks and crushes but I didn't have time to play and for extra curricular activities. Hehehe!

Transferred from one job, one place to another was really difficult. Without somebody to turn too. My parents were in the province and I can only visit them once in a year. Expenses get more and more and I never thought I can enrolled college because  my mind at those times was I need to work. To help my parents out of expenses at home,that since my father was a drunker and a weak person. However, my elder sister though I do not have a good relationship with her was forcing me to take entrance exams to Universities. And was so funny that she want me to enrolled to an expensive College and University. Of course, I refused. Who will pay my tuition fee?Who  will give my allowances? No other one, than me.  I do no apply for SA (School Assistant) kasi di ko inisip na mag aral ako and when I decided it was too late for opportunities for SA. I didn't have so much confidence for myself before. I always pulling back myself that I cannot do it.

So, I did enrolled. Working two jobs at a time. Even three.  Selling beauty products, dry goods and RTW's to my classmates and workmates. I even sell choriso and tucino to private and government offices. And that I can able to help my parents in a little way, send my younger sister to University who is now a teacher, and able to pay my tuition fee. However, on my journey to get my degree. I almost there,then I was out from my job because I was a government contractual employee. Natalo ang mayor ko hahaha! It's a known fact in our beaurocracy who ever sits in the position can help anybody but when they lost, you are out too. That was three months before my graduation, I asked my parents to support me. I know it was very difficult for them but they are the only one I can count on. And also with the help of my yearbook solicitation. I solicited people who only give  money without signature on their solicitation letter. That helped me a lot.

My Most Treasured Possession
Strong faith, determination, perseverance, and believing myself was my great traits on how I manage to reached my goal. I whispered myself the moment I received my  Diploma. LORD, this is the greatest gift, you ever gave me. Without you , who guided me all the way I can never get over all the trials you have given me. Thank you! Though life is an unending journey but have to strive, work for it and be patient. At the end of the day, you can see rainbow and be merry! But don't forget to thank him!

Looking back those memories, Thank God, I can laugh from it. Financially wise - read girls talk - I love Me - Financially. Hahaha! Di ba connected siya.? ^-^

GT- I Love Me Financially

Girls Talk

Happy Thursday everyone. Once again it's Girls Talk. This week topic is I Love me - Financially. When I read this topic of Kaye I laugh myself and asked silently  " Did I have something to brag financially?" Weeee... Like Kaye - I am also a breadwinner of the family. For the past seven years abroad, I am always a good daughter as a favorite quote of my Mom - With my income here I can provide my parents, brothers and sisters the things they needed. Bought a lovely house in Davao city for my parents and a house in Manila with the helped or I should say "contribution" of my fiancee. (Manila house only) Char!And with my weekly income I can able to pamper myself. Eating to some posh restaurant, go some shopping , and can go some adventure. I'm very thankful that since I was 13 years old , I'm not dependent to anyone. I was earning since then and helped my family in a little way.. I'm debt-free but I help my mom out of expenses as much as I can. In few months, I'm going home and with that, I'm afraid that there will be no input , no money coming in.. And I'm not used not to have something. I just wish that through blogging I can earn a little bit.

Sorry girls, for my Dramatic entry..LOL! Happy Thursday and Enjoy!

The Proust Questionaire - In my words

Have you know about The Proust Questionnaire?

I've heard about about this But I have know idea what was it, until I did research about the history of it. 

Marcel Proust was a French writer who took this survey several times with enthusiasm. He believed that people must know and understand themselves before they could know and understand others. Thus, he developed a list of subjective questions that he felt would help reveal a person's true selves and true nature.

Lets see if mine will be revealed.. Be honest!

1.  What is your greatest fear ? To get old without having someone to care for me.

2.  What is your idea for perfect happiness? There is no such thing like to love and be love in return. Lived life the best way i can and cherish memories. Feeling whole and complete that nothing in this world can go wrong.

7. What is your current state of mind? Pretty good but a little apprehensive, pensive , excited.

8. What do you consider the most overrated virtue? Self-discipline and respect - when you have this , others will follow.

9. On what occasion do you lie? When I'm not interested..I make some excuses  If it is not important invitations.

10. What do you most dislike about your appearance? I dislike my legs and my curly hair ^-^

11. Which living person do you most despise?
Hating someone intensely is far too easy to do. But I really hate someone, who take advantage my innocence and ignorance.

12. What is the quality you most like a man? Intelligence and compassion

13. What is the quality you most like in woman? Strong sense of self and Genuineness.

14. Which words or phrases do you most overuse

Rafael Nadal is back in Wimbledon

I have watched the men single final yesterday - it was an amazing game. Rafael Nadal is absolutely a great player. It took him two hours and 13 minutes to claim his eight grand slam title. 

Despite his absence last year's Wimbledon recurring his knees injuries that has plunged his career recently, he was delighted to reclaim the Wimbledon crown that he missed to get it last year!

His triumph was a different story, it's simpler than winning the title last 2008 against Roger Federer.  It was also a surprise for Berdych who struggled to find the form that saw him knock out both Federer and Novak Dykovich on his route to the final.



Nadal goes head over heels as he celebrate his wins
while Tomas Berdych contemplate his loss in the background
Bites his  championship trophy after his victory

He was very happy to received the trophy on his hand. It is more than a dream for him. He even goes his head over heels as he celebrates his win. It gives him a lot of confidence and power to be stronger next time and who knows what's going to happen for the next, he said. 

While Nadal celebrating his triumph, Berdych  was upset and sad but he paid tribute to the Spaniard. It was a great two weeks for him but the encounter yesterday between him and Nadal was strong. He said Nadal deserve to win, which was very kind of him inspite of what he really feels. 

Watching the game yesterday made me nervous but when he got the 1st and 2nd set I was glad and confident that he can get the championship set. 
Till next time Rafael Nadal.
